Meditations and Molotovs – 07.18.16

In America, the chickens have come home to roost: killer cops, deranged veterans, Christian Fascists, racial apartheid, Neoliberal dynasties, Pokémon Go, and the rise of Donald Trump. Indeed, there’s plenty to talk about on this somber and muggy Monday.

Trends This Week – In The Age of Stupid, consequences of disaster – 03.09.16

Across the globe and around the world, from nations’ capitals to city halls, they come in all sizes, shapes, races, creeds and colors. A gang of lunatics run and ruin life on Earth under the guise that the parties they belong to represent We the People and the policies they promote will bring financial security and military victory.

From the highest governmental offices to the military to central-bank policymakers, they double down on catastrophes they created by promising great success from their monumental failures. The current path to the future is clear: more of the same, but much worse. However, when a critical mass who wants to live in peace and gracious beauty take life in their own hands and take it away from those whose greatest ambition is to rule and control, the Renaissance 2.0 we had forecast will prevail.

Brookings’ two leading “scholar”-stars — Kenneth Pollack …

Swedish politician: US is the true cause of the masses of refugees from the Middle East

The present Swedish debate about war refugees from the Middle East is an example of peer restricted expression. In the name of political correctness or perceived decency, any questioning of maximum generosity in opening Swedish borders for the refugees is indignantly rejected by the official mainstream. We have a humanitarian duty towards those who are forced to flee from areas …

Warrior Connection – 04.12.15

Why are so many of our young Military personnel so messed up?

Many people think that Wounded Warriors are mainly comprised of those who have gone overseas to defend our Country. That is true to a great extent, but many of those who have not been deployed are also showing symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress.

Why Latin America Rejects US Military Presence

Ever since the Monroe Doctrine of 1823 the United States has claimed territorial rights to the Western Hemisphere, essentially warning the rest of the world to back off from USA’s backyard. The American way of proclaiming itself the big cheese of the New World manifested by quickly ousting colonial competitor Spain from Florida and the Southwest and two decades later …
